Towards a New Paradigm in Monetary Economics

Expanding upon the literature of new institutional economics, the first part of this study stresses the significance of imperfections in information, bankruptcy and banks. The second part examines the policy implications of the new paradigm emphasizing loanable fund demand and supply, and demonstrates its relevance to our understanding of two recent historical episodes—the East Asian financial crisis and the 1991 U.S. recession and subsequent recovery and boom.

Recommended to anyone interested in Banking and Economics. The book has almost no math, what makes it readable by a wide audience.
